Hi all!!! First of all , I am very proud to present you these diary cup-cakes, my first successful baking experiment. It happened once, when Shama had asked me to make some cup-cakes and I noticed that all left in my refrigerator was some fresh cream and milk. Wasn't heart-broken, tried with available ingredients at hand and hurrayy!!!!, results were fantabulous.
Enjoy at tea-time. Since they are non-butter and chunky, they can be served to all aged persons.
Diary cup-cakes are made with milk and fresh cream as key ingredients apart from regular ones. The advantage of non-butter or non-oil makes it an healthy alternative for adults, from regular cup-cakes. Also I integrated a lots of chunky, healthy stuffs like grated apple, tutty-fruity, sliced almonds, finely chopped dates, which also makes it ideal as an tea-time snack (therefore, doesn't remind us the absence of buttery frosting). So, it can delight any kid at home, also be party booster or for surprising guests at home, this cup-cakes is quick to make and hence can find a special place on ur baking session.
Though these are filled with all goodness, unlike other cup-cakes these dont have an good shelf-life. Remember that we add apples, fresh cream and milk? Those sensitive ingredients reduce the shelf-life and so they are best had within two days at room temperature or four days at refrigerator. My best suggestion would be to prepare them during week-ends at small batches, so that we can avoid wastage.
